This Wondercast celebrates the death of the geocentric model, our departure from anthropocentrism. It celebrates all forms of life, humility, and respect. It rejects of nationalism and borders, and discourages misunderstanding of others. It celebrates our ability to travel around, and meet different folks. Last but not least, it is celebration of the freedom we have to listen to music from nearly every corner of the inhabitable Earth, and to feel it it as if it was coming from a neighbor’s window. We are all neighbors, and brothers and sisters, and this mix celebrates that wonderful fact.
Ikue and Olive sprinkled with mbira gives way to some fruits of Laswell down in Cuba, bolstered with a trojan guitar skank loop. Every click matters. Defragmentation, /Rupture’ed., Jelinektronic forest funk, stopped by Billy, Ikue, and Olive. Brown Bag, Lunchbox! A minimal techno sandwich from Perth, Córdoba, and Zurich. Mutate, Mutek…then right back to Brooklyn. ‘Back to Cuba?’ Dave Aju asks. It’s A Story With A Touch, for sure. Midnight poppies lead to more Defragmentation. Arto’s Complicity, remixed, and plopped on Skull Disco mixed with John Lurie’s haunting horn. Back for a World Trance. Across the pond again to Switzerland via Storlon, and Germany via Berk. Where Do You Run To? Sub Dub! Nico Dubliners, Thoughts Like Rain. NY, Zorn.
